Lecture contents

Definition and characteristic of sensors: simple, integrated, intelligent ("smart sensor")

Overview on quantities to be measured and sesnor realizations:

  • Pressure: Piezoresistive, capazitive, methods for temperature compensation
  • Length and distance:
    • Induktive: Inducitve coil, LVDT, Phase synchrone demodulation(Lock-In)
    • Capacitive: Coating measurement
    • Optical: Triangulation, interferometry
    • Run time: RADAR and Sonar
  • Force:
    • Strain gauges and electrical conditioning circuits
  • Correlation measurement: Cross correlation, noise rejection, run time correlation

Measurement signal conditioning:

  • Measurement deviations
  • Least Squares Estimator
  • Sensor data fusion and weighted Least Squares
